Hope someone can help me.
I have a T420 with the following specs:
Lenovo T420 i5-2520M, 2.5GHz
BIOS: 1.46 83ET76WW (whitelist removed)
wifi card: Dell DW1510
Intel HD 3000
LCD display (TFT): 1366x768
I had a nicely working High Sierra install (10.13.5), with everything working as it should (incl. wifi - Dell DW1510, and the external monitor, etc.)
In short, I was quite happy with it.
However, I had to do an upgrade to 10.13.6 due to some apps which require this upgrade.
I upgraded right from booted system, from the DMG image, and the upgrade had some glitches - I had to manually rebot a stuck install, but then it caught up and finished OK.
In short, I upgraded from 10.13.5 to 10.13.6, but now I can't boot normally, except when I select safe mode in Clover.
- when I finally managed to boot (in safe mode), I also updated Clover to 220.127.116.11 (but I don't think that matters here...).
Attached is the screenshot of the verbose boot - this is where it gets stuck.
Also, my Clover boot options (with "-verbose" selected).
If I start it in safe mode, it starts and works seemingly OK (obviously, without being able to mount EFI partition in Clover...,
external monitor doesn't work, etc....)
So, is there anything I can do to make it boot normally? Also, - how? - since I can't mount EFI partition when in safe mode?
Although, this is a dual boot laptop, with Xubuntu installed, so I can use the installed Xubuntu install, or I could boot from a bootable (x)ubuntu install, whatever... I have basic Linux skills, so I guess that's an option....
Thanks in advance for any help!
